Posted on the Munnelly Connection at facebook:
I will be bringing some historical items to the reunion to share. Among them is a 3 foot by 4 foot color map of the west coast of Ireland. It is was done in 1584 by a man named John Browne. It was was colored in Italy. The reproduction is in a 2003 article in the Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy. I called the Society in Dublin from California and they were generous enough to send me a free copy. Also, I have the 2009 copy of the Ordinance Survey Letters for County Mayo from 1838. It is 350 pages long. It has a reproduction of several early maps of County Mayo. It is very strong on the origins of names of places and local history as told to John O’Donovan by the old timers in 1838. This is where we learn of the connection between the Munnellys, Ballymunnelly and the O’Doherty clan.”
